Images are a great way to grab attention. Learn how to add banner images to blog posts, events, and user profiles.

Find Image

The most important thing to consider when adding banner images to your blog posts and events are the dimensions of the image you will add. Ideally you have a high resolution image in mind, that you would like to use. You can also use great online resources to find stock art. Here are some great sources to find stunning imagery, most of which are free for commercial use and do not require attribution:

Crop Image

After you've determined the image you'd like to use, you'll need to crop it to the optimal dimensions of 1280px (width) by 400px (height). Fotor is a great tool you can use to crop images online without requiring a more powerful, complex app like Photoshop or the similar free/open source editor, GIMP. Here's a video to show you how to crop a high res photo using Fotor: Direct Video Link: Blog and Event Banner Specifications for Jive - YouTube.
